Making the Creamy Watermelon Lemonade

To make this quick and easy summer drink, you will need:

  • Seedless Watermelon. Cube it yourself, or grab some pre-cut from your local grocer.
  • A can of sweetened condensed milk.
  • A couple big lemons.
  • Your favorite silver tequila. I’m partial to 1800. Stick with silver here. Anejo’s flavor vibes don’t work well for this cocktail.

Get a pen and paper ready. Just kidding! All you need to do is add everything to your blender, and pulse until smooth. Pour ’em up over ice, and garnish with some lemon wedges and watermelon. Easy-peasy.

What kind of tequila should I use?

As I mentioned above, stick with the silver variety for this drink. Or as they like to call it at my humble corner bar, “clear tequila.” Darker anejo varieties just don’t suite the flavor profile. In a pinch, vodka or rum would also be great!

Can the watermelon lemonade be made in advance?

Having a party and want to prep a larger batch ahead of time? Go for it! Just be sure to give the cocktail a good stir or shake before serving, as it can separate a bit as it sits. And no more than 12-24 hours ahead.
